Kayak Fishing - Fishing for Gilthead Bream June 2014

Although you can fish for Gilthead Bream from April to mid October in Cornwall, I like to target them in June, July, and August.




With a warm settled forecast, I decided to head out for my first Bream trip of 2014.  When fishing for Gilthead Bream you are usually fishing within a Bass Nursery Area and I had an interesting visit from the Cornwall Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority patrol.  The trip contributed to the making of the video below.

  2. Great video and lots of useful tips. I would like to try the Fal for gilt heads next year but do not live locally. Can you suggest a couple of locations to try? Also any good sites to launch my kayak and To safely park car?

  3. Thank you for the comment. Any of the creeks off the Fal will produce Gilt Head bream. They are widespread in the summer months. From the Truro side you can launch from Loe Beach near Feock. Hope this helps.

  4. Thanks for the help. Have you ever tried other estuaries in Cornwall such as R Fowey? I would expect that they would also contain gilt head bream? Any depth of water you have found to be particularly productive for gilt heads?

    By the way my name is Paul. This foreign sounding name was siezed on by Gmail when I registered overseas and as I dont use Gmail normally I cant be bothered with faff of re registering! Do you have a regular e mail contact as I would like to discuss other subjects such as fishfinder choice etc?

    1. Hi Paul. I have never tried the Fowey for gilts however, it does produce them as does the Helford and River Hayle. Most Gilthead Bream are caught in under 10ft of water therefore, you do not have to worry about fishing in shallow water (just like Bass). You can contact me via: cornishshoreandkayakfisherman@gmail.com Regards Rob.
